Oil study #55

Another pear... I still struggle with my values. The shadow side was too light at some point. I changed it. Now I think it's too dark. Zut alors!

BTW: some of the lighter brushstrokes are an artifact of light reflection in the photograph, and not a lighter color. Brushstrokes in different directions reflect light differently.

I like to paint pears and apples. That is what I paint when I can't think of what to paint. Nice job. Yummy.

It's a good pear, Johanne. The shape is realistic and the colour gorgeous. I very much like what you did with the catchlight and the reflection is very nice.
